Can you believe March is coming to an end? Its already time for those April showers that will bring us May flowers. But before the rain comes, I thought we could all use one more pinch of luck- in the form of clover embroidery. I made the four-leaf ones easy to find.
Its the first day of spring, but the weather is playing it cool and acting like its not a big deal. I think a thunderstorm is predicted for later. But our newly planted seeds need some water anyway!
My second skirt for the upcoming season is this floral creation. I’ve already worn it a couple times. The pattern is super simple, and I added a little roundness to the hem in the back. A perfect breezy skirt for when it finally decides to be springtime.
We added a strawberry patch to the garden! Isn’t it just the cutest little patch you ever did see.
We made the planter ourselves with our creative gardening skills. I really wanted a tiered circular planter, to add some visual interest to the garden. We had a hard time finding one that fit my landscape vision, so we made our own using some garden edging. Now its perfect.
After spending a week in the sunny, almost spring of the northwest, its kind of a bummer to come to the cold, drizzly south. But at least I have this new skirt for sunnier thoughts. Its my first time sewing a knit, and it actually went pretty smoothly. The bottom of the skirt is a flowy, cascading shape, so I had to model it to show it off. I’m looking forward to wearing more skirts this spring!
No better way to say bee mine than with stinging insects. These cards focus more on the sweet honey, and are available for stitching up now!
I made some burritos for our freezer, and now I feel like the most prepared person in the world. All ready for lunches. Just add some avocado.
Underneath that foil (or in that plastic bag after I ran out of foil), is:
- A burrito sized tortilla
- Refried beans
- Some cheese
- Some of that frozen southwestern corn with the pepper and onion bits in it
- And some salsa mixed with plain greek yogurt
So now you can feel like the most lunch-ready person in the world too! Does anyone know if lettuce freezes well?
